Japanese Whisky

Japan is known today as the home for some of the world’s greatest whisky distilleries. In fact, the whisky produced there is made in a very Scottish way, and is often described as being somewhere between Speyside and Lowland whisky in character. The industry in Japan must be credited to two men: Shinjiro Torii, who founded Suntory and built the first distillery – Yamazaki – in 1923, and Masataka Taketsuru, who travelled to Scotland to learn whisky production, before returning and building the Yoichi distillery.
